This gives a whole new meaning to the term”dry drunk.”
Were you one of the many who got excited when you heard about Palcohol, the powdered liquor that was supposedly approved by the federal government? Well, don’t pour yourself a Palcohol drink just yet. The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau, which is part of the Treasury, now says the approval was issued in error.
So says the Associated Press who quotes a federal representative for the about face. The company that makes the powdered drink is saying the error has to do with a labeling misunderstanding and still hopes to get the product on the market. Groups like Mothers Against Drunk Drivers hope that’s never going to happen.
